Come to the Table

A Celebration of Family Life
By Doris Christopher (Electronic Book, 2000)
Something magical happens when we sit down to dinner as a family in the last fading light of the day. We begin opening up to each other, reinforcing the bond that we share. Children tell stories about the day's events, parents gain new insights into their kids, and relationships deepen and thrive. Whether you're hoping to restore the ritual of the Sunday dinner or simply establish the routine of family meals, it's time to turn off the TV, turn on the answering machine, and..."Come to the Table."

In this helpful and heartfelt book, Doris Christopher shows families how to honor and celebrate one of our most beloved traditions: togetherness around the family table. An American entrepreneur, who is also an enterprising American mom, Christopher serves up a blend of inspiration and practical advice, revealing the ways dozens of others have transformed their tables into vehicles for strengthening family life.

After all, the table is more than just a place to eat dinner. It's where birthday cakes light up a child's face, homework is done, bills get paid, and laundry gets folded. And as Doris Christopher shares tips on how to make ordinary dinners special, how to encourage even teenagers to join the family gathering, and how helping to prepare meals can boost a child's self-esteem, she also shares remembrances of her family table...stories that will surely bring back your own memories.

The hours we spend with those we love become the most valuable time of all
